Atonement for sin is no longer made by the high priest in Israel when he
passes through the veil of the temple into the holy of holies. (Lev.
16.) See Heb. 6:19-20. Now there is a new way, a living way, for the
veil of the old temple was rent with the crucifixion. (Matt. 27:50-51.)
Now Jesus has passed through the veil into heaven itself. While he
lived, his mortal flesh stood between him and the eternal holy of
holies, for "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Cor.
15:50), but now he has, at it were, rent the veil of his flesh through
death and entered into the fulness of his Father's kingdom through
resurrection. (Bruce R. McConkie, Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3
vols. [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965-1973], 3: 191.)
19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into that within the veil;
20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high
priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. (Hebrews 6:19-20.)
